My Momma's Fierce


Have you ever seen those little old Chinese ladies that walk around with purple hair, skin tight leopard leotards (possibly glittery), a monstrous piece of jade, and a Gucci handbag and act like they own the place? Hubby thinks I might become one of those "ci lais" in my old age and I say please kill me if I do. Lainey's mom, or "Chinese Squaking Chicken", seems to fit this description, and thankfully my momma isn't as extreme as that. No doubt she is fierce; like the time she rocked the skinny leather jeans way better than me at Teenflo. I'm stealing those back.

Another item I'm pilfering from mom is her Italian red, gold, and grey silk scarf, shown above.
